San Francisco Friends of Chamber Music Announces Schedule for SFMusic Day

Every fall the San Francisco Friends of Chamber Music presents an eight-hour marathon of free chamber music. Now in its ninth year SFMusic Day - Live + Free, will spread out across four stages in the Veterans Building, located on the southwest corner of Van Ness Avenue and McAllister Street. The major venue will be Herbst Theatre, and The Green Room on the second floor will also host performances. In addition two sites will be provided by the newly-opened Diane B. Wilsey Center for Opera on the fourth floor, the Dianne and Tad Taube Atrium Theater and the John M. Bryan Education Studio.

This year the event will take place on Sunday, September 25. Doors will open at 11:30 a.m., and concerts will begin promptly at noon. Admission is free, but Eventbrite has created a registration page. The schedule of performances, sorted by venue, has been planned as follows:
